Questions related to the Russian Federation, (the largest country in the world) and its geography, history, demographics, government, politics, economy, people, culture etc.
What continent is Russia on?
Russia is typically considered part of both Europe and Asia. There's some dispute over where the border between the continents actually is (in Russia and beyond), but most people say the part of Russia west of the Ural Mountains is European and the eastern part is Asian. That means more of Russia's landmass is in Asia, but more of the population lives in Europe, as the biggest cities, Moscow and St. Petersburg, are both on the European side.
If this frustrates youâ€”"Why can't everything fit cleanly into our categories!"â€”I have bad news. Russia isn't the only country that spans multiple continents; Egypt, Greece, and Turkey do it, too.
